Will teams like UNH, UVM and UMaine ever be competitive again?
Once upon a time...

No one wanted to play at Providence
No one wanted to play at Umass

Hire the right coach and everything can change.
It's not always the coach, both PC and UMass have great facilities. For UNH, UM nad UVM, their facilities are outdated, that's their big issue. Out of the 3, it's UVM that has the best chance of making a comeback, very reputable school, great city, and I believe they are updating their arena. UNH's problem is that they are to close to the Boston schools, and Maine, doesn't matter who they hire as a coach, know one wants to live in Orono anymore, too far away, and the arena is a dump!

PC was 100% the coach Before Leahman came off a Union College Frozen Four appearance, the place was a was 35 yo dump! He made them changed everything. Providence put 18 million into upgrades to Schnieder Arena bc he told administration if they want to continue to grow they needed investment to lock down top players.

But now it is the facilities, as UNH, UVM and Maine still have crappy facilities

Re: University

Maine has a chance with new coaching. Need to stop recruiting grinders from Quebec and big d who can’t skate. Guite is gone and that is a plus. Rip Red but he was way past his prime. Never adapted to the modern game. Had good goalies and would’ve been much worse but for that one position

Re: University

Bingo. New coach and arena (which is great to watch a game) is old school great is getting an upgrade. Loud and fun. Coach is key to drawing the talent.
